People with limited incomes partner with Habitat to build a decent, affordable place to call home.

Applicants are evaluated based on four main criteria:


  • Living in substandard housing

  • Living in overcrowded housing

  • Paying more than 30% of gross income in rent

  • Living in temporary, subsidized, or public housing

Ability to Pay:

  • Must be able to afford monthly mortgage payments

  • Debt to income ratio has to be lower than 10%

  • Stable income between the Income Limits based on family size (HUD Limits)

Willingness to Partner:

  • Complete a set number of “ sweat equity” hours

  • Provide necessary documentation

  • Attend Homebuyer Education classes


  • Applicants must reside in our service area: Matthews, Mint Hill, or Stallings

With a little help, we all have the potential to stand on our own.
